Connecting the Dots: Trusting in the Journey



Steve Jobs, in his iconic commencement address, spoke about the unpredictability of life and the essence of trusting the journey. His words resonate deeply with me, especially when I reflect on my own path.


My Journey with "Just Mike It!": The birth of "Just Mike It!" wasn't a linear process. It was an idea born out of necessity and a passion for efficiency. Just as Jobs stumbled upon a calligraphy class that would later define the typography of personal computers, my journey with app development stemmed from a deep desire to help people structure their thoughts and tasks. The dots connected in ways I couldn't have anticipated.


Leading at Deutsche Telekom: Being the Managing Director of Deutsche Telekom in Switzerland is another dot on my canvas. Every decision, every strategy, every innovation stems from past experiences, learnings, and even missteps. The nuances of leadership aren't taught in classrooms; they're gleaned from lived experiences.


The Unpredictable Nature of Life: Much like Jobs' unexpected adoption story and his decision to drop out of Reed College, my life too has had its fair share of unpredicted turns. While the contexts are different, the underlying lesson remains the same: life doesn't always go according to plan. And that's okay. It's these unplanned events that often lead to the most significant growth and insights.


Trusting the Process: You can't foresee how the events of your life will unfold. All you can do is trust in the journey, believe in your intuition, and have faith that, in the end, the dots will connect. As I lead, innovate, and grow both personally and professionally, this philosophy remains my guiding light.


In conclusion, every twist, every turn, and every unexpected event in our lives contributes to our story. And as we continue to move forward, it's essential to trust that these experiences, no matter how disjointed they may seem at the moment, will eventually connect to form a cohesive, meaningful narrative.
